News and notes from around the interweb:
- FAA investigating whether airport keeping out Chick-fil-A violates federal law
- Do cash back shopping sites encourage higher spending?
- British Airways opens its historical archive
- Petition for American Airlines customer service agents to be given stools
- I continue to believe that it’s nearly loyalty malpractice that Hyatt does not have a status match or challenge program for disaffected Marriott top tier elites but now has challenges for American AAdvantage mid-tier elites.
@HyattConcierge do you do status matching? I'm a few nights away from platinum with Marriott, but a 3+ day wait for service on a serious safety incident doesn't meet my bar for service and I'm considering switching loyalty programs.

- Satire: Morning airport drinking somehow consequence-free, reckon blokes
MEN believe that drinking beer at any time of day is harmless so long as it is carried out within an airport departure lounge.
Drinking four or more pints at breakfast would usually be considered worthy of some sort of intervention by family or friends, but when done at Gatwick Airport is perfectly normal and healthy.
- The storage costs alone are astronomical and mounting.
